graduated from college need not spare any longer at their faded obama posters on the wall and think that a life at home is all the have to vote for. governor romney said -- there's nothing to be ashamed with voting for obama, but if you are disappointed, there is an alternative. many of the partisans like that. in a broader audience, those were lines of attack that might resonate. how concerned are you about a conversation along those lines diminishing the president's possibility of being reelected? guest: you described them as lines, that's what they were. let's be clear, if you go with the mitt romney paul ryan budget, they will cut out student loans. they will cut medicare. essentially, they will this invest in infrastructure needed to stay strong. they will cut taxes that disproportionately impact the super-wealthy and, importantly, are paid for by the middle class. i will not try to suggest that those were not good lines. they definitely got applause. the question is, why did they not speak about their policies? there was not a lot of that. there was soaring rhetoric and good a
bill done. >> go ahead. >> congressman, it has been 3 1/2, almost four years president obama has been in office. how many years do you expect voters to give him to bring the economy back to where was before the financial crisis? >> how many years do you think it will take before the senate will reform cloture votes and the 497 bills that -- while we were in the majority -- they made sure did not get to the floor? and the obstructionism of the house, as i said earlier. i think the public gets it. i think this president has demonstrated time and again. past president clinton did a very good job of outlining how he has reached out to the other side. also, pointing out how difficult the situation they found themselves in. and the rejection of the path we find ourselves on now. president clinton summed it up very well. look at the job creation on behalf of president obama and the direction he has as going in, and then look at the direction the republicans would take us. they want to go backwards. even the current house republicans in terms of job creation - as president clinton put it, "ze
housing and urban development secretary shaun donovan. initial obama campaign stop in wisconsin. then a debate in the wisconsin senate. >> this week on "newsmakers" we are joined by shaun donovan. welcome. we have a few reporters with us. alan from "wall street journal" and brady from "the washington post." >> the housing bust has been a catastrophic event for millions of american families. this go around we have not heard that much about it from either campaign. why does housing seem not to be a focus this time? >> it is a focus of the president. as you know, there is a broad range of things we have done to try to move the country forward and move the housing situation forward. you have seen president obama talking about the need to open up more refinancing. this is one of the most important things we can do at a time when interest rates just hit 3.4% this week, the lowest 30 year mortgage rate in the history of the country. we have to open it up to more families. that is something the president has talked about. we are taking actions to do that. he is urging congress, the sena
obama, if re-elected, do you find him philosophically inclined to do this? >> well, i'm not sure about that. what happened last summer doesn't give me much confidence that he has that intent and capability. when we had the long, drawn-out negotiations on the debt ceiling matter, i wasn't happy with his performance there. >> can you explain why. >> because he would not budge. the norks were -- negotiations were not fruitful. i think mainly because he insisted on the tax increases that he knew we couldn't go on with. >> and your side was willing to negotiate? >> i'm sorry? >> your side was willing to negotiate? >> sure we were willing. in fact, the speaker was on -- was discussing with the president several times, and norks broke down, according -- negotiations broke down, according spot speaker, when the president insisted on a knew huge new crop of increases. >> do you think ryan -- paul ryan has done a good job talking about this issue? i have been startled to hear more criticism of president obama for cutting $760 billion from medicare than an informative sort of discussion about the
the housing situation forward. you have seen president obama talking about the need to open up more refinancing. this is one of the most important things we can do at a time when interest rates just hit 3.4% this week, at the lowest 30 year mortgage rate in the history of the country. we have to open it up to more families. that is something the president has talked about. we are taking actions to do that. he is urging congress, at the senate, and the house to take action on the proposal to open up free financing more broadly. beyond that, i do not think we have heard much from the president's opponents on housing. i am not sure he has ideas that can move the housing market for word that are stronger of better than what the president has put forward. we heard governor romney say just what the housing market hit bottom. that is the something the president will let happen. that is why the president has been talking refinancing. >> before this election, what grade would you get yourself and your agency? >> clearly, if you look at where the housing market is in the improvements that hav
